10 Reasons You Should Never Get a Job

28 Jul

While searching the internet for “feed favourite articles to you blog”, the first link I get is an article titled “10 Reasons You Should Never Get a Job”.

Here the reasons:

1. Income for dummies.

Getting a job and trading your time for money may seem like a good idea. There’s only one problem with it. It’s stupid! It’s the stupidest way you can possibly generate income! This is truly income for dummies.

Don’t you think your life would be much easier if you got paid while you were eating, sleeping, and playing with the kids too? Why not get paid 24/7? Get paid whether you work or not. Don’t your plants grow even when you aren’t tending to them? Why not your bank account?

Smart people build systems that generate income 24/7, especially passive income. This can include starting a business, building a web site, becoming an investor, or generating royalty income from creative work. The system delivers the ongoing value to people and generates income from it, and once it’s in motion, it runs continuously whether you tend to it or not. From that moment on, the bulk of your time can be invested in increasing your income (by refining your system or spawning new ones) instead of merely maintaining your income.

2. Limited experience.

You might think it’s important to get a job to gain experience. But that’s like saying you should play golf to get experience playing golf. You gain experience from living, regardless of whether you have a job or not. A job only gives you experience at that job, but you gain �experience� doing just about anything, so that’s no real benefit at all. Sit around doing nothing for a couple years, and you can call yourself an experienced meditator, philosopher, or politician.

3. Lifelong domestication.

Getting a job is like enrolling in a human domestication program. You learn how to be a good pet.

4. Too many mouths to feed.

Employee income is the most heavily taxed there is. In the USA you can expect that about half your salary will go to taxes. The tax system is designed to disguise how much you’re really giving up because some of those taxes are paid by your employer, and some are deducted from your paycheck. But you can bet that from your employer’s perspective, all of those taxes are considered part of your pay, as well as any other compensation you receive such as benefits.

5. Way too risky.

Many employees believe getting a job is the safest and most secure way to support themselves.

Does putting yourself in a position where someone else can turn off all your income just by saying two words (�You’re fired�) sound like a safe and secure situation to you? Does having only one income stream honestly sound more secure than having 10?

6. Having an evil bovine master.

When you run into an idiot in the entrepreneurial world, you can turn around and head the other way. When you run into an idiot in the corporate world, you have to turn around and say, “Sorry, boss.�

7. Begging for money.

When you want to increase your income, do you have to sit up and beg your master for more money? Does it feel good to be thrown some extra Scooby Snacks now and then?

If you have a business and one customer says “no� to you, you simply say “next.�

8. An inbred social life.

Many people treat their jobs as their primary social outlet. They hang out with the same people working in the same field. Such incestuous relations are social dead ends.

9. Loss of freedom.

It takes a lot of effort to tame a human being into an employee. The first thing you have to do is break the human’s independent will. A good way to do this is to give them a weighty policy manual filled with nonsensical rules and regulations. This leads the new employee to become more obedient, fearing that s/he could be disciplined at any minute for something incomprehensible.

Free human beings think such rules and regulations are silly of course. The only policy they need is: “Be smart. Be nice. Do what you love. Have fun.�

10. Becoming a coward.

Have you noticed that employed people have an almost endless capacity to whine about problems at their companies? But they don’t really want solutions – they just want to vent and make excuses why it’s all someone else’s fault.

If you can’t call your boss a jerk now and then without fear of getting fired, you’re no longer free. You’ve become your master’s property.

CafeShops and CafePress

27 Jul

Four years ago, I had tried to earn some money from www.cafepress.com.

I’m a member of cafeshops.com/cafepress.com since 4/6/2003 and had earned US$7-US$3=US$4 currently. Why -US$3? It’s because someone had returned the product back to the company. Why he/she returned? Maybe because the prints quality is not up his/her standard. Got US$3 from their referral commissions. I earned 5% of the products my referrals sold.

Actually I had give up on www.cafepress.com for a long time, but I will create a better design again when I gained a bigger blog fans.

Lost My Vista Recycle Bin Icon

26 Jul

Instead of clicking the “Empty Recycle Bin” link at the Vista desktop, I accidentally clicked the “Delete” link to empty my trash!

Luckily I found that I can bring it back by going to the “Personalize” link (right click at the desktop area) and then clicked the “Change Desktop Icons” link. Ticked the “Recycle Bin” checkbox and press “ok”, Voila.. the recycle bin is back!
